What certification will I get from this course?
The Open Water Diver Program is a globally-recognized certification program complete with theory, skills and practise sessions in an open water setting. Firstly, you will receive a downloadable Open Water Theory Package via your email which you must study before being tested on your knowledge and understanding. Our fully qualified instructors will then guide you through 6 sessions of pool practise and 4 open water ocean dives from shore and the Blue Explorers’ dive boat.
Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a certification allowing you to dive up to 18m all over the world. If you are already a Scuba Diver and would like to upgrade to the full Open Water license this will shorten the course to 3 chapters of online theory, 2 sessions of pool practice and 2 Open Water dives.
What is included in this dive course?
Blue Explorers provide all dive equipment (unless specified) and our dive teams are not only fully qualified and multi-lingual, but are also skilled at identifying the Canarian plant and animal life to make your trip as informative as it is fun. There may be opportunities to have your photo taken underwater to take home as a souvenir or post to social media as soon as you’re back on dry land.
We suggest that our dive and non-divers either bring a picnic lunch or can enjoy a meal in one of the many seafront restaurants in Taurito Bay or Abades village square, where our dive centres are situated.
